I'm new to BT, and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks in advance.
My question is this: advantages or disadvantages of Durock vs. DenShield tile backer in a large custom shower- 6'-0 x 6'-0 with two rain hoods in the ceiling and 10 body sprays, two mixing valves, and one hand held nozzle. The tile layout is pretty intricate, with multiple trim pieces. The HO is an interior designer. I've had great luck using DenShield over the last few years without any callbacks. The current shower detailed above will be tiled by HO's tile man, not my usual sub. He told me today that he would only install tile over Durock, not DenShield. I'm wondering if there's a real difference in the products or if you really "Can't teach an old tileman new tricks?"
